Holy Week

The events of Holy Week through the eyes of those who were there

This year, instead of a Good Friday Walk of Witness and service, we embark on a virtual walk through the events of the first Holy Week. We see that world changing week through the eyes of those who were there. In a series of seven films, Mark Pickett helps us understand what went on in the minds of some of the followers and some of the opponents of Jesus, and shows us how events which took place over 2000 years ago still have life changing relevance to us today. The first film will premiere on Monday 29/03/21 at 9.00am and the others will follow at the same time on the following six days.


We're blessing our neighbourhoods this Easter. 

At church, we have 100s of 'Living Hope' Cards for your to distribute to your neighbourhood. We'd encourage you to give some kind of blessing with these cards: flowers, baked goods or similar. If you're stuck, we have plenty of chocolate eggs and hearts for you to give out - please collect from the church entrance hall. 

We would love for you to give these Easter cards and gifts out during Holy Week to invite your friends and neighbours to our Easter services.
